This process has been going on for a while now as "Create Victoria", but just last week the City of Victoria Draft Arts Master Plan was presented to council.
The entire "Create Victoria" process is a noble one, and if the assorted constituents and functionaries - along with the local and regional politicians can keep their crap together ... something good might just come out of it all to the benefit of all who live here in the Capital Region.
The 12 little Kingdoms in the CRD really have to streamline how they fund the regional arts scene though. Right now it seems Victoria, Saanich, and Oak Bay are the only ones picking up the tab for things that it seems ALL residents of the CRD just presume are theirs too.
I rarely praise the City of Victorias governance (for good reason), but in this case they get sincere and serious kudos for at least making the effort to broaden the support base for the massive financial machine that is the arts industry in the CRD ... and specifically in Victoria proper.
